AIM To study alterations in choroidal blood flow (CBF) in the foveal region after panretinal photocoagulation (PRP) in patients with severe proliferative diabetic retinopathy. METHODS Seventeen eyes of 17 patients with severe non-proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) or with non-high-risk PDR and no macular oedema before PRP were included. All patients underwent four sessions of scatter PRP. We measured the choroidal blood velocity (CBVel), choroidal blood volume (CBVol) and CBF in the… CONTINUE READING
